How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?: 
Confidence and aptitude in communication. Simply put, my English degree provided a solid foundation in my ability to formulate and articulate my thoughts in myriad of ways. The power to communicate verbally and through writing is a powerful tool, especially in the technology age where so much of who you are is defined through social media , blogs, etc. I am so thankful for my degree.
